Richard Slee - Sunlit Uplands

Wed-Sat: 11-6pm

Hales is delighted to announce "Sunlit Uplands," the gallery's fourth solo exhibition with Richard Slee. In an epic installation of a new series, Slee has created a meticulously crafted ceramic archipelago.

Slee (b. 1946 Cumbria, UK) is one of Britain's most influential and celebrated artists working with clay. In an oeuvre spanning five decades, Slee's work challenges conventional notions in ceramic art with technical precision and outstanding craftsmanship.

In this large-scale project, Slee intricately explores the phrase "sunlit uplands" as a concept for an imagined landscape. The quote has been used as political ideology, as an assurance for better days to come.
